Grandpa is So Old...
True story reported yesterday from my daughter:
Ryan (my grandson, age 6): Grandpa is old, isn't he?
Mom (my daughter): Why do you ask?
Ryan: I was just wondering about when he was a kid. Were all the TV shows on his iPad in black-and-white?
And to think that I used to be proud of the fact that I was the first student in my high school to own a cassette tape recorder — a marvelous Norelco that I still remember fondly. I also remember my first three cameras — a Praktica FX2, a Mamiya 500TL, and a Yashica Mat 124G — with a nostalgic mist in my eyes. Purchase prices: $35 (used), $119 (new), $125 (new). Ah, so many cameras ago . . .
Yes, Ryan, Grandpa is old.
